ASU - Jonesboro: 74 students

Arkansas State University in Jonesboro has named 74 students to the 2008 edition of Who’s Who Among American Universities and Colleges.

An ASU nominating committee and the editors of Who’s Who directory made the selections. The award is based on academic achievement, university and community service, leadership in extracurricular activities, and potential for continued success.

Dr. Rick Stripling, vice chancellor for student affairs, and the deans of the various colleges recognized the award winners during a ceremony on the university campus. Tera Ramsay of Trumann also received the Outstanding Who’s Who Award, given by Crews and Associates of Little Rock.
